Commonly known as Sydney Blue Gum, this beautiful red timber has a fantastic grain. It is also easy to work, dress and fix. It responds well to most finishes and takes a good polish, making it popular for decorative applications where moderate durability is required.
Coffs Harbour Hardwoods is a long-standing supplier of power poles and sawn hardwood cross arms to the electricity distribution industry. This has been a core product of our business for over 50 years. Strength, durability and cost-effectiveness are clearly important attributes
Coffs Harbour Hardwoods can deliver your timber within the Coffs Coast area. Our trucks are equipped with a crane to unload our beautiful, natural hardwood.
If you would like your timber delivered, we do have to limit where we can deliver due to safety concerns. Please communicate any difficulty with tight roads, steep hills and changes in usual conditions due to inclement weather to our sales team when ordering to enable your timber to be delivered in a careful and safe manner.
Delivery is to kerbside only.
For our wholesale market we can arrange transport interstate where required.
When building in bushfire prone areas it is important to follow the correct guidelines and design methods. A range of prevention strategies has been developed, aimed at diminishing the risk of ember, radiant heat and even flame damage. The Standard sets guidelines for assessing which of six bushfire attack levels (BAL) a site falls into (BAL: LOW, 12.5,19, 29, 40 and FZ) and then specifies additional construction requirements for houses in the more bushfire-prone areas. The goal is to reduce the risk of fire and ember penetration. Fortunately, Australia has several high-density timbers that provide inherent natural bushfire resistance. The seven bushfire-resisting timbers specified in the AS 3959-2009 are tough, dense hardwoods that performed well in extensive fire testing.
These species may be used up to and including a BAL 29 rating.
Blackbutt, Merbau, Red Ironbark, River Red Gum, Silvertop Ash, Spotted Gum, Turpentine.
Other species that we offer may be used up to BAL 19 but please consult with professional advice before selecting the species you wish to use in your locality.
